Such a great hostel! I would recommend it to any solo travellers. I was in a 4 person mixed dorm room and it was so spacious. You are given a single bed (no bunks - yay!) with a bed side table and a partition between the beds. The bathroom is to share between the 4 and it is pretty big... More

Best location, absolutely clean, cool and friendly staff, comfortable beds, free computer access, free aperitivo (pasta/pizza + wine) every night... Lots of books, common room, breakfast with awesome fruit salad, large well-lit mirrors and chairs to apply make-up...

The Hostel is awesome, the location is unbeatable only a few steps to the duomo, the front door give you the sense of night protection, the staff is kind and friendly especially Rose, the room had a locker even when we travel 4 friends, the housekeeping of the room is good. The breakfast is not helpful for a big belly... More

The Academy delivered what it promised! Great location and clean facilities. We had a private twin share on the top floor with our own bathroom! For what we paid- it was good value for money! Reception could be a little slow- but dont let that deter you. Another thing to bear in mind is the lockout period between 11am-230pm (or... More

My friend and I stayed in a 4 bedroom (mixed). Amazing location only metres from duomo. Basic hostel - clean, professional, practical, computer access. Breakfast was substandard however the pasta/wine served during the evening was good quality and complimentary. Although we were initially confused as to why we could not return to hostel during the day it was not an... More

Lovely place to stay in the centre of Florence. Spotlessly clean, great location, and not your usual hostel, no partying here which was quite refreshing! Caters to an older crowd and also families. Great breakfast. Couldn't ask for more!

If you want to be close to the center of Florence, near Duomo, then you cannot ask for a better location. This hostel even offers free pizza party every night and free breakfast in the morning. Although I must say their dorm rate of 33 euros a little bit more expensive than most hostels I have stayed at in Europe.... More

One of the best hostel I been so far! Wonderful location - 2mins away from the Duomo. It is also clean and safe with a private bathroom in each room. The staff is really friendly, eager to help and their recommendation are amazing! Their free breakfast and evening wine and appetizer are delizioso! I will definitely go back!

We stayed in this hostel for 3 nights. After all the good reviews and some 'Hoscar' - awards, we thought this would be an amazing hostel. It was not. The staff is friendly, especially two younger guys, whom we had a good talk with and who were worth visiting the hostel. But one of them is leaving the hostel, which... More
